Stefan Hogarth is one of the refs tonight and called 16 powerplays against the Bison in his last two games - let's hope it is not the same tonight. Fingers crossed.
Bison lead the series 3-0 and would love to win the series tonight. Looking forward to the Teddy Bear Toss after their first goal. Expecting a battle tonight, but the Herd should edge it.
BIson are without Zach Sullivan on international duty, while Daniel Rose is also missing for the same reason. Telford import Marek Mikusovic is the one of the five they have on the team not to ice tonight.
Good evening and welcome to tonight's game between the Basingstoke Bison and the Telford Tigers.
